- I put the cream cheese in the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften it up. Made the mixing part much easier.
- Gave the olives a rough chop as I like larger pieces.
- Definitely let it sit out a while before serving.
- Triscuits are the way to go. You need something sturdy to hold up all that yumminess.
